GEORGE H. HUBBARD, M. D. of Lansingburgh, died at that place Jan. 19, 1876, aged fifty-three. He was born at Hopkinton, N. H., June 8, 1823. He studied medicine under the direction of Dr. Diamined Davis, of Sutton, N. H., and graduated in June, 1845, at Vermont Medical College. From that time to 1849 he practiced at Bradford, N H.; from 1852-55 at East Washington, N. H., where he represented that place in the state Legislature. From 1853-59 he was editor of the New Hampshire Journal of Medicine. In 1861 he was commissioned surgeon to the 2d New Hampshire Volunteers. He remained in the army until the close of the war, having held many important positions in the medical department of the army. In 1868 the honorary degree of master of arts was conferred upon him by Dartmouth College.

The cause of death was a serious cut on the left knee which he received from a fall in getting out of a horse-car. Imflammation and blood poisoning followed. He died in the full vigor of his manhood, beloved by all who knew him, and respected and honored by the profession.
